C.L.E. Cigar Company, owned by Christian Eiroa, has announced the return of the Wynwood cigar brand, now known as Wynwood Hills.
Wynwood Hills launches with three cigars, each being rolled in a singular, 4½” x 50 rothschild vitola. The cigars are billed as medium to full in body, utilizing three wrapper varietals to make each blend unique.
- Unhinged: Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper
- Mayhem: Authentic Corojo wrapper
- Deranged: US-grown Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper
Wynwood originally debuted in the early months of 2012 as a joint effort between Christian Eiroa and Robert Caldwell, offering artistically geared cigars that were rolled at the newly opened Wynwood Cigar Factory in Miami’s burgeoning Wynwood art district. Roughly 10 months after the company’s inception, Robert Caldwell left to form Caldwell Cigar Co., and the Wynwood-based factory subsequently closed. Since this time, C.L.E. has held onto the Wynwood naming rights, with the cigars being included on the company’s website ever since—alluding to the possibility that the brand had the potential to one day return.
Wynwood Hills cigars are expected to arrive at retail shelves in November.
